First anniversary update:
My car finished his first year anniversary unhappy and resting in Honda service center. I will come about the issue later.
4th Service: I finished 6000 kms in 12 months and did my first paid service for Rs.5500+Rs.1500 toward claim. There were two damages in the body; one in bonnet and another one near petrol tank cover. Total bill for tinkering and painting work was Rs.9500 and it has been fully covered by insurance company (Honda Assure - Zero depreciation policy).
Insurance Renewal: Since my claim for two different area of car was fully covered on my 4th service, I opted to continue my policy with Honda assure for Rs.19500; this time I didn't opted for zero depreciation policy which costs additional Rs.6000.
Issue 1: Engine Idle Grinding Noise - From the beginning I am facing this issue as reported by many City i-vtec owners. On every service I took this concern to service engineers and they lubricated the idler belt and then no sound for 1-2 months and it came back again. Its a continuous story.
Issue 2: Noise from Gear Box (as per service engineer diagnosis) - I am facing this issue from my second service (since 3rd month). The sound is coming from engine and it can be heard clearly from inside. Its "gar gar gar..."
sound when the car is on move, engine is in gear (any gear), foot is taken out of clutch and accelerator. When I press the clutch, the sound disappear. ie, "gar gar gar.."
sound" coming from gear box when car is moving in gear with out acceleration and disappear when pressing clutch or making acceleration. Initially it happened after taking 50 kms ride; but now its after 3-4 kms ride.
I am really disappointed and never expected these type of issues from Honda. I thought they were premium; I fooled ...
Does anyone else facing such an issue?
